Route: Sabbaday Brook Trail, Mt. Tripyramid Trail, (Mt. Tripyramid North Peak), Mt. Tripyramid Trail, (Mt. Tripyramid Middle Peak), Mt. Tripyramid Trail, Sabbaday Brook Trail

My original plan was to do a somewhat advantageous hike in the Evans Notch area. Upon waking up, however, my achilles informed me my plans would be changing. Thus, I decided to stay closer to home and give the Sabbaday Brook Trail a go.

The first fraction of a mile of trail was a nice, gravel path. Beyond that, the trail was slightly confusing as it made its way over various water crossings (I'd hate to have to do these during or after rain!)

With the exception of a few short, rough areas, the trail had pretty nice footing for quite some time. Things were very gradual for perhaps 4 miles, before suddenly turing rough and steep as it worked its way up an old slide.

Finally reaching the height of land and the Mt. Tripyramid Trail, I headed over to the north peak. The views were quite good - another nice day weatherwise!

Once at middle peak, I had some lunch and spent quite a bit of time enjoying the views.

On the way down, I took a fall on the slide portion of the trail - fortunately I had a band aid to control some resulting bleeding! Reaching the flatter portions of the trail, I headed up a gravel slide to check out some additional views - nothing overly special, but nonetheless a neat little side trip.

The walk out dragged on, as my feet grew sore. Reaching the falls, I joined the masses to check out the sights - a neat place!
